Highlights with a purpose

Blending as opposed to covering gray

By Maree Chavez - October 3, 2018

We chose a vanilla honey highlite and placed in the gray areas. We then glazed all of her hair with a shiny conditioning gloss to soften and polish all of her hair.

Now her highlites blend in with her gray resulting in a softer, warmer 'frame' for her beautiful face♡.

Blending as opposed to covering gray

This client wants to continue to grow out her gray. She's feeling like the gray hair is a bit drab and wirey....see solution in next photo......

Wearing it up.

Exposing more

In this photo I was on my way to hair industry event.

I knew I had to pull my brave together since I would be in a room full of hairstylists:)

The outcome? A mixed bag of reactions and opinions.

The younger generation asked me "what color silver toner" I used and the more seasoned stylists looked at me with a bit of curious wonder---some LOVE IT---some can't wrap their head around WHY someone would WANT to be gray.
Some people say "well YOUR hair is a good kind of silver ---mine isn't.... OR  "wouldn't it be cool if ALL of your hair was white like the front"....

I'm discovering that this is truly my own unique path. My natural hair color has it's own pattern and tone unlike anyone else..this is what is becoming the fun part---...instead of looking in the mirror and seeing old and gray---I SEE WITH a young curiosity.


just hanging out at home --casual.

So --experiementing at home. different ways to wear my hair. I could almost pull this off....I need a little more 'super white light" highlites pulled thru the back and side panels to get a better blend. But just for hanging out at home it's not bad..... (and to be honest -I am wearing my hair like this today at work). I know that it needs work---just don't have the time...but it's fun to wear it down again:)

4 months

So far in this gray trip

By Maree Chavez - August 8, 2018

Whelp. It's been 4 months since I picked up a color bottle.

Hasn't been easy.

It's been interesting seeing people's reactions.

I stand in seeing the 'light' at the end of the tunnel.

Very mindful of the colors I wear (bright colors next to my face helps with feeling 'washed out'.

Haven't worn my hair down in about a month.

Slowly moving away from the colored sprays and exposing the white more and more.

I have a long way to go.
